Post Date:
Apr 11, 2023

A multi-disciplinary team at Queen's University continues creating valuable opportunities for researchers to stay informed about important developments in Research Data Management (RDM), and how these developments may impact their work. Researchers at Queen's are encouraged to take advantage of the latest of these opportunities, happening Wednesday April 12, 2023. 

Join Queen’s Data Champions (qDC) in a virtual panel, moderated by Dr. Betsy Donald, Associate Vice-Principal Research and SSHRC Leader, that will explore  Research Data Management in Practice. 

Registration is now open

The panel is aimed at providing Queen's University researchers with a forum for learning about various journeys in RDM while sharing lessons learned, promoting best practices, and building community and collaboration at Queen’s. The panel is aptly timed after the recent release of the Tri-Agency RDM Policy and increasing interest in enhancing RDM support and resources at Queen’s.
